Override/Bond Election 2019

The Dysart Unified School District Governing Board has called for a Bond and Override Election on November 5, 2019.  As designated by the Maricopa County Elections Office, this is an ALL MAIL-IN election.  The bond program would be $152 million to fund safety and security upgrades, buses, technology, school renovations, land for a new high school, and construction of two elementary schools.  The 15% override would maintain funding for programs currently serving Dysart students such as Arts, Physical Education and Athletics as well as academic support programs for Math and Reading.  Funding to retain highly qualified teachers and staff, maintain manageable class sizes and offer free all-day Kindergarten for the community would also continue with the override renewal.  With election costs typically over $100,000, the board felt it would be an efficient use of taxpayer funds to combine the override election with the bond election in order to save on those fees.

Proposed Continuation of 15% override: NO TAX INCREASE
